Because she's a married working mom, the similarities between Malin Akerman and her Trophy Wife alter ego may not be immediately evident. The actress and her character do, however, share a taste in mature men.
"Your husband on the show is a lot older than you," Chelsea Handler said on the Monday, Oct. 7, episode of Chelsea Lately. "Have you had sex with a lot of older men? Like really old?"
"Not really old," Akerman, 35, laughed. "Let's not go Viagra, geriatric."
Handler then inquired about the biggest age difference Akerman has ever had with a lover. "This is awesome that we're talking about this," the TV star replied. "My son's in the back."
"Your son [Sebastian, with husband Roberto Zincone] is 4 months old," Handler quipped. "He can't hear a thing!"
Akerman relented and revealed some information about one of her past loves. "I was 16 and he was 28," she shared.
Handler, who was in a similar May-December romance as a teen, was shocked. "That's a big age difference," she said. "That's illegal!"
During the episode, Akerman also talked about her dual role as star and producer of ABC's Trophy Wife. "I am a boss now, which is sort of like a game for me because I don't know what I'm doing," she admitted. "I just go to set and do my acting thing and then pretend like I'm producing stuff. So I like it a lot!"
